Crevasse Rescue Course: About


Learning crevasse rescue is the first step to becoming a competent member of a mountaineering team. Many alpine objectives in Washington and beyond require glacier travel. While we all hope never to have to pull a teammate out of a crevasse, preparation and practice is important. 

All guides are AMGA Certified Alpine Guides.
